Liked the location and the property is well designed. Rooms and dining facilities both exceeded my expectations. However, the Wifi went out overnight and the "IT department only works during normal business hours", which is apparently sometime around 9am. Makes catching up on morning business with the east coast very difficult. Calls to the front desk went unanswered which in and of itself is problematic. The hotel management put a lot of thought into the renovation of this property but needs to work a few kinks out in the service department.
